ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Adam Bendy presents his first album, CHANGE, under the project name thinkbendy. From 2003-2013, Bendy toured and recorded with the New York jam quartet U-melt, helping to bring the band to a national audience. Now, after several years of culling older material, Bendy comments, "I've had time to focus on developing some older musical ideas, as well as writing and arranging new ones. It was a new approach for me as a musician, not only being responsible for arranging bass parts to existing songs like I've done in the past, but also taking on the role of writer, lyricist, arranger and performer."

In addition to playing bass for this album, this is Bendy's first time in the world of vocals and keys. In fact, Bendy set out to write this album starting with the piano, focusing on lyrics and melodies first, then layering on arrangements. With CHANGE's core created on an instrument other than his native bass guitar, Bendy's concepts and instincts are as refined and adventurous as if he'd been playing keys for years.

On CHANGE, Bendy champions self-examination- specifically in life's small moments that are easily overlooked. He cradles and jolts the listener into realizing that progress doesn't happen in the murky, distant dream of idealized abundance. Instead, Bendy imagines we must be willing to adapt, or more simply, to change. He loosens our grasp on what we think will make us happy, fostering acceptance of the world and awe of the every day.

CHANGE explores sonic range that obliterates the listener's expectation of the band's modest instrumentation; unassuming and profound, like the "small" moments he encourages listeners to embrace. Bendy's hope extends beyond himself, beyond rose-tinted visions of growth without struggle, and into a realm of perpetual arrival, as we "Move-On" to our endlessly evolving minds and worlds.

Contributing to the recording are long time friends and collaborators, Robert Salzer on guitar and George Miller on drums (both from U-melt), and special guest musician Ann Mcinerney on flute. Together they assemble to create Adam Bendy's debut full-length studio album, CHANGE.
